of the house energy action team, i understand how important this project is to our nation and to my home state of montana. let me be clear, this project means jobs for montanans. this project could directly create more than 800 good-paying jobs in montana and thousands more across the nation. it means coming one step closer to north american energy independence. the keystone x.l. will be able to move up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day. that's about half the amount that the u.s. presently imports from the middle east. and of that oil moved each day, 100,000 barrels will come from the bacan formation which suspends across montana and north dakota. this isn't about politics. republicans and democrats alike support the pipeline. this is about our nation's security. this is about lowering energy costs for american families. this is about american jobs. enough is enough. we can't afford to wait any longer. it's been 1,636 days. it's time for president obama to approve the keystone x.l. pipeline. thank you and i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. the ch
the importance of growth. i just came from a hearing in the energy subcommittee of energy and commerce. we were fortunate enough to hear from the -- one of the members of the railroad commission in texas. the railroad commission doesn't have anything to do with trains any more, it has to do with energy. the commissioner from texas was at the committee hearing and i asked him a question, i said in the ryan budget that we will hear about tomorrow, there is an estimate of $11 billion over the next 10 years that will be paid to the federal government because of development of oil and natural gas on federal land. i said i'm from texas. that number seems a little bit light to me. i would expect the amount of revenue produced on federal lands from oil and gas production, assuming we don't legislate it out of existence through the environmental protection agency, he said in texas the two-year budget figure for oil and goes coverage taxes is $7 billion. well, that would be a significantly greater amount than the $11 billion estimated in the ryan budget. i asked mr. ryan about this last night at the rule
in the gulf is the trade of energy between the gulf and asia. as we talk about burden sharing, what is the world for partnerships, while the country's already close allies and countries which are not allies, but which are relying on an energy from the gulf? should we be thinking about that differently in the budget context you have described? >> that is the argument you here. like 27like this -- things the united states can achieve a level of independence. why would we continue to be concerned about the energy that flows out of the gulf? my answer to that is i did not go to the gulf in 1991 and stayed there for about the next 20 years because of oil. that is not why i went, not what my children wet. we went there because we thought that a region of the war where we had not -- except for a few bilateral relationships, where we had not invested in me -- much of our band with in intellectual energy, commitment -- we went there in 1991 because of the-- because aggression of hussain, but we went there because the future of the region was typed our future, and not too distant, oil, but ra
to strike because we live in a global economy. beyond that we need to have pro-growth energy policies, including oil and natural gas. our regulation, our regulations have to be the product of a cost-benefit analysis. the government is trying to help the business community. in america business fields like government is their impediment, their competitor, their enemy. that has to stop. our monetary policy cannot be used to i flat things and distort our economy. the list goes on and on. we know about tax policy. we need to have a pro-growth tax structure, not one that takes from some and gives to others. and last but not least, we believe in solving our debt problem, because it's hurting job creation. jobs are not being created in america. there are jobs that are not being created in this country because we have a $16.5 trillion debt and it's only scheduled to get bigger. that problem has to be solved and you can only solve it, the only real approach that solves it is the combination of fiscal discipline and rapid economic combrothe. there is no tax increase in the world that will solve
our domestic demand. today new technologies have enabled us to access previously inaccessible energy resources, and almost overnight america's energy resource picture flipped from deficit to surplus. in the past five years we've become stronger as a nation through the developed of these god-given resources. as a result we are more competitive. from low income to the high tax brackets, everyone is benefiting. the future's bright but only if we educate the half truths and begin telling the real story of america's natural gas revolution. the stories about technology, private sector innovation, investment, financial risk, thousands of new jobs, new competition, new growth, a growing and better standard of living for more americans, lower energy costs, new industries, a revitalized energy sector, more jobs, more growth, energy security and optimism. this is the story of america's natural gas revolution. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the entleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentlelady from illinois seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house
in areas where we need investment. why not shift those tax credits and benefits to a new energy economy? building a good grid. creating jobs by doing it, by incentivizing business. yes, let's work with business, but incentivizing these companies to do something that will not only create jobs and opportunities for folks. so i do get your point that you ponied up $600 billion. it's a sacrifice for people who are -- 1%, small 1% in our country, but there have been $2.5 trillion taken out of the economy. you look at somebody like chairman bernanke, he says that one policy option is not equal to another. so if we slash and burn and cut unemployment insurance, for example, as a way of cutting the budget, that that has a dill tearous impact on our -- dilatorious impact on our income versus taking a few more dollars from the wealthiest people. host: brooklyn, new york, alice on the democrats line, hello. caller: thank you. i'd like to say, paul ryan before, i don't -- don't hang up i want to be able to say he sounds like he was running still for vice president. he lost. he's a congressman. that
. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first delivery, we will work with the state, nye county and surrounding communities to provide incentives to benefit the people of nevada and their communities. we will address infrastructure needs, providing additional groundwater monitoring, build rail spurs, providing benefits outside of the yucca mountain project. as we look to make nuclear processing viable in the future, we can establish research dollars to our universities in the state to be loords in this field, and -- leaders in this field, and we will best fit their needs. this will mean thousands of direct or indirect jobs throughout nevada. before even of these incentives are discussed, we know the project will yield 2,500 direct jobs on its own for more than 25 years under the current permit. even after 50 years as the project winds down there would still mean more than 500 direct jobs. construction of a rail spur could require an additional 1,000 workers and 300 permanent jobs for decades to c
a failing bankrupt solar energy company. and so for the rest of them, these hardworking americans, they want an opportunity and they want a main street economy that if they work hard and they play by the rules, every american can succeed. finally, the people i represent , they believe it's just immoral, immoral to saddle our children with these trillions of dollars of debt. that's why i'm proud to support both the republican study committee budget and the republican budget. they'll bring us a vibrant economy with a whole new tax code which is fairer, flatter, simpler and more competitive, a budget that is guaranteed to grow jobs and paychecks. contrary to the democrat budget, no tax increases on nobody. we quit spending money we don't have, and i know my democratic colleague is very sensitive about the balance issue, because they have a budget which never balances. the american people demand one. the republican study committee and the house republican budget deliver it for a fairer economy, for a balanced budget, for a greater future for our children. we need to support these republican budg
to the unfair and inaccurate attack on a clean energy company that's located in my home state of nevada. the republican proposal refers to the solar reserve project as an ill-fate adventure. had he done his home work, budget committee chairman ryan would have discovered that this cutting edge solar project is not ill-fated but instead has long-term contract with our state's largest utility, it has created 450 good-paying jobs for nevadans and it's running on schedule and underbudget. the assertions being made in the republican budget undermine the success of renewable energy programs, the jobs they create and the investment they represent and our nation's future energy needs. in las vegas and across the country, americans have made it clear that our budget should be a path forward for a strong middle class and serious investment in the next generation of americans. let's reject these mathematical gimmicks and unstub staveragiated attacks and -- unsubstantiated attacks and get to work on a real budget. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlem
and research, clean energy and housing. budgets should be designed to grow our economy and get people back to work. this republican budget does not reflect the values of our great nation. it will hurt our economy and it will hurt the american people. it says as yogi beara said, deja vu all over again. more tax breaks for the richest americans, big subsidies for big oil, tax subsidies to companies that ship jobs overseas at the expense of the middle class and working poor. our federal budget should honor the commitments we have made to our seniors, but this republican proposal would end the medicare guarantee as we know it, shifting rising health care costs to seniors. we should be educating our next leaders to enter the workplace successfully and making meaningful investments in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, bridges, rods and schools and put people back to work in jobs that help support families. but this budget makes deep cuts in rebuilding america and in education. according to the center for american progress, the republican budget proposal on the floor today would cut $1.2 t
in the area of domestic energy production that will lead to more jobs, that will lead to more energy independence for america. these are the kinds of things that we look to in april, mr. speaker, and i would tell the gentleman again, look forward to working with him in an open process, in a bipartisan fashion. i yield back. mr. hoyer: i thank the gentleman. now, we'll be ending now, but i know you have an extraordinarily able assistant sitting to your right who advises you on issues of great importance to our country. the gentleman to my right does the same thing for me. the gentleman to my right went to wake forest. maryland played wake forest last night. and i hope as we play duke tonight that we are equally successful, mr. nevins, who is a graduate of duke, it will be a little tougher game than wake forest, i understand, but we look forward to trying to be successful in that effort. kyle nevins is a wonderful member of the majority leader's staff. he worked for my dear and close friend, roy blunt, for some period of time, and he began working for mr. cantor in 2008 as his floor di
finish on this. if we are interested in r&d as we indicated, clean energy, slashed. having an impact on the quality of life of families raising children. what about nutrition assistance? snap programs. what an obliterating cut to the snap program which is now serving 48 million people. let me remind my colleagues that these are military personsing women in the military, these are young families, these are individuals who are in school, and so women are disproportionately impacted and this, i think, is clearly one of the largest conflicts of reason and that is to underfund or take away the funding for the affordable care act that has been reaffirmed by the united states supreme court and has been documented as having a health care savings and providing for healthier america and here we are taking away coverage from 27 million americans. mrs. maloney: they took a-- they take away the good aspects of it, the preventive and health care they propose to eliminate that but keep the tax savings from it to balance their budget. it is a hoax. it's not realistic. it's not true. and i really app
, energy, and manufacturing initiatives. today as you know we'll meet with president obama. we look forward to that meeting to lay out our shared vision of economic growth in a balanced approach to deficit reduction. we need to reduce the deficit. we all agree on that. democrats for decades have been saying pay as you go. republicans repealed that aspect because they didn't want to pay for their tax expenditures which are as much in spending as any other spending in the budget. again recognizing the budgets are not just about numbers, and their numbers don't really add up in a good way for america's great middle class, their budgets are about the impacts that they have on the american people. we look forward to continuing that debate. i'm very proud of our members. they understand the knowledge of the budget and what it contains are really the fundamentals of what we come here to debate. and this isn't just about what we pass one day or another. the decisions made in these budgets and what that means in the legislative process, appropriation, ways and means, etc., the impact of these budget
energy grids, fix our wastewater and high-speed rail and engage the private sector with the make work pay credit. and then we're going to do things like help support local heroes like mark cray who is a paraprofessional and also cops. in my own state of minnesota, we are going to have a cut of $200,000. this is money that we use to train police officers to be better and more effective and serve the public better and we aren't going to have that. i'm not here to put my friends on the other side of the aisle down. i'm here to say they have another vision of america and that vision of america is that government can't help people and that government can't do anything right. they're wrong. they're wrong. if the interstate highway system, that's government. the interstate highway government is government. police who work the beat and make sure that the shopkeepers' stuff isn't ripped off, that's government. this thing about government is always wrong, is wrong. and time for the american people to say, responsive government does great things for american people. and along with the private sector
that showed up for that endorsement. we spent a lot of time and a lot of energy and effort making sure that scott walker and ron johnson won that primary. that was our decision. i would not have appreciated the national party countrymen and telling the state of wisconsin i do not know about scott walker i think we will go with mark neumann. that is ridiculous. that is the point. it is not that we want to handcuff ourself it is just not practical. it is not right. on to beors have gone some of the most significance president rick significant president's. -- the most significant presence. are you doing enough to support that? >> that is the plan for 2013 and 2014. i know our state parties do a lot of work. the rga does. we have a different party, it too. 15 or 20 years ago or maybe more there was not nrcc. there was not 10 or 20 different super pacs. we have a big group of organizations that are involved in getting republicans and conservatives elected. together notput only the best infrastructure and and overallhanics messaging. for the most are there are lots of players out there that
